Johnson comes under fire from sacked climate conference boss

Chief Correspondent

Boris Johnson has been accused of a lack of leadership on climate change, on the day he launched plans for the upcoming UN climate conference in Glasgow.

Former Conservative minister Claire O’Neill – who on Friday was sacked as president of the event – warned that the government was “miles off track”.

The Prime Minister insisted that hosting the COP26 summit was “an important opportunity for the UK and nations across the globe to step up in the fight against climate change”.
